Mazda taking orders for MX-5 RF fastback

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF (retractable fastback), the hit of April’s New York International Auto Show, is now on sale in Canada.

The 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF (retractable fastback), the hit of April’s New York International Auto Show, is now on sale in Canada.

Only 50 will be available staring at $38,500 for the GS and $42,200 for the GT.

Mazda Canada will invite a select group of loyal Mazda customers to secure their order by sending them a unique PIN code via email.

This special code will give them access to the pre-order website and allow them to build and order their own MX-5 RF to their unique specifications, one week before the pre-order site opens up to the general public.

When the MX-5 RF arrives in showrooms, it will be available. The MX-5 RF GS brings essentially the same feature set as its soft-top stablemate, with the notable difference being the new power-retractable hard top which can be lowered for maximum driving pleasure in approximately 12 seconds, making it one of the fastest power-retractable hard tops on the market.

The optional Sport Package ($4,400) turns up the aggression with the addition of seventeen-inch forged BBS wheels, Brembo front brakes, and red painted calipers. Inside the car, heated Recaro sport seats (leather and Alcantara® trimmed) ensure the driver and passenger will stay firmly planted in their seats during spirited driving.

The MX-5 RF GT builds on the GS with leather seats, BOSE premium audio system with nine speakers (including headrest speakers).

Paired with a black contrasting roof, this package sets apart the MX-5 RF, as this option is unique to the hard top version.

And if that’s not enough, at the top of the ladder is the most aggressive yet refined combination available.

Take the best parts of the GS Sport Package – the dark BBS wheels and the track-ready Brembo brakes – and mix in equal parts luxury with the sumptuous Nappa leather seats and piano black hard top, and you’ve got the ultimate version of the MX-5 that will be just as ready for a day at the track as it is to be taken out for a night on the town.

The 2017 MX-5 RF will be available in dealerships starting in early 2017.
